Train "Slightly" Derails

Crews in Madison County are trying to get a train back on track, after what's being called a "slight" derailment.

It happened around 3:00 Sunday afternoon near Red House Road.

Fire officials say the CSX train was traveling around 20 miles per hour, when some of train's cars bumped into each other knocking the wheels off track.

Nothing on the train was spilled and all the cars stayed upright. The engineer on the train was injured, but is expected to be okay.
